Installation Instructions for the Following Wilson Signal Boosters: DB Pro In-Building Wireless Cellular Smart TechnologyTM Amplifier Model # 271265 FCC ID: PWO271265

Before Getting Started

This guide will help you properly install Wilson's Adjustable Gain DB Pro - In-Building Wireless Signal Booster, with Smart TechnologyTM. It is important to read through all of the installation steps for your particular application prior to installing any equipment. Read through the instructions, visualize where all the equipment will need to be installed and do a soft installation before mounting any equipment. If you do not understand the RepeaterStore.com Technical Support on (800) 761-3041. instructions in full, contact ZSVDQWHQQDVFRP Technical Support at . Reasons for Weak Cellular Signals Anyone who uses a cell phone or cellular data card knows the frustration of not being able to connect to or maintain a strong cellular signal. When this occurs, it's generally due to one of two reasons: 1. Location of the Nearest Cell Tower ­ Cell towers are situated to provide broad coverage; however, there are many areas in which signal strength may be reduced by local government restrictions on the height or placement of the towers themselves. Rural areas generally have fewer cell towers than urban regions. 2. Natural and Man-Made Obstructions ­ Signal strength can also be negatively affected by trees, hills, buildings and other obstructions. You may be relatively close to a cell tower but still unable to make a call. This often occurs in homes, offices and other buildings in which stucco, concrete or metal walls block the signal. The Adjustable Gain DB Pro works with two antennas. The inside antenna communicates with your cell phone, and the outside antenna communicates with the cell tower. The outside antenna receives the outside signal and sends it through the coax cable to the Adjustable Gain DB Pro, where it is amplified and retransmitted through the inside antenna into the room. When the inside antenna picks up a signal from your cell phone, the Adjustable Gain DB Pro boosts that signal and transmits it through the cable to the outside antenna and back to the cell site. (Note: the Adjustable Gain DB Pro Signal Booster will only operate if there is adequate signal to amplify.)

EASY TO INSTALL The following steps provide a summary of the signal booster/antenna installation process. However, they are not a substitute for the complete installation instructions on the following pages, which you should read thoroughly. Contact Wilson's Technical Support Department with any questions at .

1 Select a location to install the signal booster that is away from excessive heat, direct sunlight and moisture. 2 Select a location on the roof of the building to install the outside antenna. Use a cell phone in test mode to find the strongest signal from the cell tower (see pg. 5). Visit wilsonelectronics.com to find the test mode function for your particular cell phone. 3 Select a location for the inside antenna, preferably in the center of where the signal needs to be amplified. Separation between the booster and the inside antenna must be a minimum of 10 feet, to prevent oscillation. 4 Verify that both the outside antenna and the inside antenna are connected before powering up the signal booster. Lightning protection is recommended for all in-building installations. 5 Separation distance between the inside and outside antennas must be a minimum of 50 feet, 75 feet is even better.

Warning: See RF safety warning on page 5.

Installing a Wilson Signal Booster Select a location to install the signal booster that is away from excessive heat, direct sunlight, moisture and that has proper ventilation. Do not place the signal booster in an air-tight enclosure. Recommended installation locations for in-building amplifiers are: · On a wall · In a closet · Near a power outlet Run the outside antenna cable to the signal booster and attach it to the connector labeled "outside antenna" on the signal booster. Run the inside antenna cable to the signal booster and attach it to the connector labeled "inside antenna" on the signal booster. Note: Be careful when plugging the connector in so as not to bend the center pins on the connectors. Ensure cables have a tight connection. Note: Separation distance between inside and outside antennas must be a minimum of 50 feet, 75 feet is even better.

Powering up a Wilson Signal Booster 1. IMPORTANT! Ensure that all cell phones and cellular data cards within 50 feet of the inside antenna are turned off. 2. To verify proper installation of the signal booster and antennas, make sure that the distance between the inside and outside antennas is a minimum of 50 feet, 75 feet is better. 3. If you are using an outside Yagi antenna, never point the front of the Yagi toward the inside antenna. 4. Ensure that both the outside antenna coax cable and the inside antenna coax cable are connected to the signal booster before powering up the signal booster. 5. Plug the 6-volt power supply into the signal booster input marked "power" (carefully, to avoid damaging the center pin) and then into a wall outlet. 6. If using a panel inside antenna always point the panel antenna away from the outside antenna. Signal Booster and inside antenna must have a minimum separation of 10 feet, to prevent oscillation. 7. If you have a RED light on the front panel of your signal booster, adjust the gain control corresponding to the frequency band for that particular light, slowly to the left, until that light turns green. If the coverage area is insufficient after the light turns green, try to re-orient the inside and outside antenna or both, until the gain control can be increased without turning the light red. 8. If you know that only one frequency band (800 or 1900) is available in your coverage area (or going to be used), reduce the gain control on that frequency band that is NOT in use to the minimum. This will reduce the power consumption of the signal booster.

Understanding the Signal Booster lights and troubleshooting The Signal Booster is equipped with 2 indicator lights, to let you know if the booster is working correctly. The indicator light on the left is for the 800 MHz while the indicator light on the right is for the 1900 MHz band.

GREEN: RED: The indicator lights on the signal booster will be GREEN when the unit is powered up and working properly. BLINKING RED LIGHT: This signal booster has protection shut off circuits to prevent disrupting cell sites. If your signal booster is in the process of shutting down (indicated by a blinking red light on both, or either band) please refer to note 7 above. Then reset the signal booster by removing power from the signal booster, make sure that no cell phones are located within 50 feet of the inside antenna, then reconnect power to the signal booster. If the red light is still blinking contact Wilson Tech Support for assistance 1- A solid RED light indicates the signal booster has shut down to prevent oscillation. Move antennas farther apart then reset the power. If red light is still on refer to note 7 above, in the Powering up a Wislon Signal Booster section. To reset the signal booster, disconnect then reconnect the power supply.

Warnings and Recommendations

Warning: The Yagi antenna must always be located so the back or side points to the inside antenna. Never point the front of the Yagi antenna toward the inside antenna ­ this is to prevent oscillation. Connecting the signal booster directly to the cell phone with use of an adapter will damage the cell phone. Connect both the outside and inside antenna cables to the signal booster before powering up the amplifier. Use only the power supply provided in this package. Use of a nonWilson product may damage your equipment. RF Safety: FCC regulations require that any fixed outside antenna used with this signal booster may not have gain less cable loss that exceeds 15 dBi and must be located at least 30 inches from all people. Inside antennas must not exceed 7 dBi gain less cable loss in the 800 MHz band or 10 dBi gain less cable loss in the 1900 MHz band and must be located at least 8 inches from all people.

Warning: Warning: Warning: Warning:

! Warning: Verify that both the outside antenna and the inside antenna are connected to the signal booster before powering up the amplifier.

! Warning: Use only the power supply provided in this package. Use of a non-Wilson product may damage your equipment.

Lightning protection is recommended for all in-building installations.

Finding Signal Strength and Calculating Coverage Distance Signal strength and the corresponding coverage distance you can expect to achieve with your signal booster/antenna system are based on a combination of several factors: the received signal strength of your cell phone alone, the signal gain achieved by your signal booster and antennas and the signal loss from cables, taps and splitters you may be using. To calculate your approximate signal coverage distance, you can enter this information into our Coverage Area Calculator on the Technical Support page on our website (www.wilsonelectronics.com). If you prefer, you can manually calculate your approximate signal coverage distance. Measure the Outside Signal Level (OSL) at the intended outside antenna location using a cell phone in test mode. (For assistance, visit the Phone Test Modes section on the Technical Support page on our website or call .) The OSL will always be a negative number. (Even if the cell phone shows a positive number, you will need to change it to a negative for this calculation.) Maximum signal strength is usually about -50. When the signal weakens to about -100 or worse, the call may be dropped. Your inside and outside antennas will also add signal gain, again depending on the antenna models you are using. You will also experience some signal loss from cables, splitters and taps used to connect your system.
